AFTER being listed in the top 40 upcoming artists in the country by the Association of Independent Recording Companies (Airco) in South Africa, Stampeed, a local hip-hop outfit, was awarded the opportunity of shooting their first music video.

Airco, in partnership with the SABC and the Department of Arts and Culture, subsidised the video which will, once production is complete, be broadcast on the TV music show Live Amp, says group member Nkululeko Sithole.

Airco chairperson Dodo Monamodi said: “The aim of this subsidy is to make sure these companies and artists remain independent by owning 100% of their work.”

Airco, he said, would continue to keep a close eye on these “indies” until they become fully fledged industry players.

Sithole says the subsidy for a music video shoot for their song Birthday Yam, would have not been a success had it not been for the sponsorship they received from local businesses.

“I’d like to extend my gratitude to Enterprise iLembe, Nandos Stanger, which provided over 60 meals for us, Spar Stanger for the snacks and refreshments, Simply Models, which provided us with top-class models, Bus Life Family, which helped with transport and last, but not least, the Palms Bandamp;B where our video was shot,” he said.

The video is due to air in six weeks, but Sithole­ says their music is available on iTunes. For bookings, contact them on 076 912 2945 or email stampeedsa@gmail.com
